  • Full Circle Elementary was founded as an independent school in 1973.
  • After operating in Putney and Deerfiend, it settled at its present location on a wooded hill just outside the town of Bernardston, Massachusetts.
  • The forest that encompasses the school contains pine woods, open meadows, marshlands, streams, and ponds.
  • The setting cultivates a lasting awareness and respect for the surrounding world, and enables the students to enjoy first and experiences with nature n a daily basis.
  • It is the belief in the importance of understanding life eternal cycles that gave rise to the name of the school.
  • It is our wish that each child learns to experience life as a whole.
  • Full circle school is attended by children three years of age through twelve.
  • Class sizes are small and the student to teacher ratio allows for close relationships between the teachers and students as well as between teachers and school families.
